Shot among the looming mountains and dusty basins of the Mojave Desert, “Motorcycle Jesus” casino online is scored by five original BOOTS tracks and will soon be available to view on bootsonboots.com.
A trailer from the 30-minute-long featurette can be viewed exclusively via Nowness.
In addition to the “Motorcycle Jesus” release, BOOTS will also be offering the original soundtrack to the film, available March 3 via Canvasback/Atlantic.
Jon Pareles of The New York Times recently joined BOOTS for the filming of “Motorcycle Jesus”, resulting in an introductory profile in the paper’s Sunday, February 15 edition.
